Aphasia Resource Center

Welcome to the Aphasia Resource Center at Boston University Sargent College of Health & Rehabilitation Sciences. For our clients and their families, we’re an acclaimed clinical treatment, learning and support center. For our students, an excellent training environment. And increasingly, for the benefit of people with aphasia worldwide, we’re an ambitious clinical research center. We invite you to explore our website to learn more about who we are, what we do, and the kind of center we can be for you.

During the spring semester of 2023, the Aphasia Resource Center is offering a hybrid program for our weekly sessions.  Some groups will be in-person in Sargent College and some will be offered online via zoom.  We hope this flexible program will allow you to engage in the ARC community in a way that is most beneficial to you. We have taken several steps to ensure everyone’s safety while in-person, for more information regarding our in-person covid policies please click here: ARC COVID Policies. The Saturday group will continue to be offered online.

**Update:  The Massachusetts Board of Registration for Speech-Language Pathology and Audiology has made changes to the telepractice regulations.  The new guidelines state that we can defer to the rules of the state in which the individual resides.  Simply put, if you live outside of Massachusetts, and your individual state allows telehealth services from a provider in another state, we may welcome you into our weekly ARC treatment groups.  If you need help understanding the rules in your individual state, please reach out to us directly aphasiacenter@bu.edu and will try to help.

**We will continue to monitor the COVID-19 situation carefully and will make programming adjustments as necessary to ensure everyone’s safety.

Supervisors will be in touch regarding individual therapy sessions and evaluations.  If you have appointments or sessions with the Aphasia Research Lab, please contact the lab directly. Feel free to reach out if you have questions and concerns: aphasiacenter@bu.edu.
